Barbecue Jackfruit Tacos

With its tangy sauce and meaty texture, barbecue jackfruit makes a great taco filling. These tacos are Asian inspired, with a soy and sesame-dressed slaw.

Grilled Salmon on a Cedar Plank

The method of cooking salmon on a cedar plank over an open flame goes way back. Soaking the plank first helps to ensure that the fish remains moist and tender, and it steams slowly, absorbing subtle smokiness from the wood itself, as well as any herbs or spices you use. This recipe is quite simple, calling for just some salt and pepper and optional dill and lemon.

Blood Orange Pound Cake

With a pronounced berry finish balanced by a bitter undercurrent, blood oranges are a wonderful ingredient in baked goods. This easy pound cake is topped with a pink-flecked glaze that helps to keep it moist.

Lemon and Blood Orange Roasted Chicken

This chicken is cooked at 500℉ for about an hour, and is packed with flavorful garlic and citrus. Potatoes and carrots are roasted in the same pan as the chicken, so if you throw together a simple green salad while it’s in the oven, you have a filling, mostly hands-off meal.

Hearts of Palm and Blood Orange Salad

This salad goes so nicely with so many meals, you might find yourself eating it every couple of days when blood oranges are in season. The bright pink color of the dressing is a welcome sight in the middle of winter, and the combination of crunchy, slightly bitter romaine with crisp hearts of palm and juicy blood oranges is one you won’t forget.

Two-Potato Gratin

With their rich, buttery flavor, Yukon Gold potatoes hold their own in this simple, unadorned gratin.

Brown Rice Congee with Shiitake Mushrooms and Greens

Congee, or Asian-style rice porridge, has many variations. This version uses brown rice instead of the typical white, and contains lots of fresh shiitake mushrooms, warm garlic and ginger, and greens. Serve with optional toppings (see the note at the bottom for some ideas) at the table, and you’ll have a comforting meal that will please everyone.

Mango and Avocado Salsa

This simple, fresh salsa is ready in about 10 minutes. Perfect accompaniment to tortilla chips, but also anything grilled.

Vegetable Cottage Pie

Cottage pie is a traditional Irish dish made with lamb and potatoes, much like shepherd’s pie. This vegetarian version is made with plenty of vegetables and lentils, simmered with fresh rosemary. It’s such a perfect dinner for a cold winter’s evening, don’t wait until St. Patrick’s Day to enjoy it.

Baked Mozzarella Sticks

Classic appetizer, minus all the oil. These are great to have in the freezer - you can just bake them from frozen for a quick, cheesy treat.

Collard Greens and Kale Pesto

Fresher and brighter than collards that are simmered for hours, this is a pesto that you’ll want to put on everything. Try on pasta, of course, but also stirred into minestrone, spread on toast, or as a topping for burgers.

Grapefruit Rosemary Olive Oil Cake

Fresh rosemary is an unexpected ingredient in desserts, and it adds a warm, complex note in this simple and straightforward grapefruit cake. Use the nicest olive oil you can.

Scallop Tacos with Spicy Grapefruit Salsa

Enjoy the classic combination of citrus and seafood in these fast, easy tacos. Be sure to start cooking the scallops quickly after tossing with grapefruit, as the citrus juice will turn them mushy if they sit for a while.

Black-eyed Peas with Collard Greens

For good luck all year long, here’s what to eat on New Year’s Day. With bay leaf and dill, and no ham hock, this vegetarian version is Greek-inspired, not Southern.

Grapefruit Campari Sorbet

Rio Star grapefruits are at their peak now, so this is the best time to tuck into this liqueur-infused frosty treat. The Campari helps the sorbet stay scoopable, but if you want to substitute it with orange juice (or grapefruit juice), or omit it entirely, that is fine.

Mustard-Roasted Broccoli Pȃté with Leeks and Lemon

Here’s an unusual pȃté that would be an excellent addition to a vegetarian riff on a charcuterie platter. Add some good bread, a bowlful of olives, some pickled vegetables, a couple of nice cheeses and you would have quite the spread. It’s also really good on a piece of toast when you want a quick snack.
